Sunday in our house means it’s time for Big Breakfast Sunday! While my sister does cinnamon roll Sunday, we make something different every week. Of course, we have our standby meals such as pancakes and waffles. But, when we can, we try out new things.

One of those trials was a berry croissant bake. Funny story, the first time I wanted to make this, Justin misread the grocery list and bought 4 packages of crescent rolls instead of 4 fresh croissant rolls! We used them to make some crescent roll cinnamon rolls and as a side for a few meals. Then he got actual croissant rolls to make this breakfast casserole.

Since we are all fans of berries, I wanted to use a lot of them in this meal. I used frozen strawberries and blueberries since those are our favorites.

If you want a great make-ahead breakfast, this will work for that, too. Prepare the casserole and refrigerate it overnight. Then you can heat it in the morning. Just make sure you let the pan come to room temperature if it’s a glass dish or preheat the oven with the dish in there.

Step by Step

Ingredients

  • 4 large butter croissants
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen berries
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk

Make-Ahead Option

Berry Croissant Bake can be made ahead of time. Prepare the casserole then cover and place in the refrigerator overnight. Place the casserole in a cold oven and heat to 350F. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until the center is set. You don’t want to put a cold dish in a hot oven or you risk it cracking.

Leftovers

Leftover berry croissant bake can be covered and stored in the refrigerator. Reheat in the oven by placing it in a cold oven and heat to 350. Cook for about 10 minutes, until warmed through.

    This looks so yummy!! Croissants are one of my favorite breakfast foods and it’s a great way I’m sure to use some up before they go stale. I wonder if you just had like leftover french bread or something to could you use it to make the same recipe?

    1. Ooh, that would be interesting. I think it would change the flavor a little bit since croissants are usually buttery, but it should cook in a similar way.

    This is an awesome dish for the summer, especially for the summer. I have been craving more fruits due to the heat. I will have to make this next week!
